here in danville, that's their hottest temperature at 99 degrees. livermore at 98. east bay, temperatures above average in oakland at 83. walnut creek expected at 97. this saturday, tracking a storm system. it is so far to the north, though, that any kind of major rain chances will stay well up into canada, washington and oregon. for us getting grazed by the bottom edge will bring us a few raindrops, trace amounts to maybe about 0.03 of an inch, if we get anything all. so for the weekend forecast, we expect that hot weather all the way through friday. throughout saturday, about a ten degree drop in temperatures. the best chance showers down here. up next, the 49ers suiting up for joint practices in denver. but one key member as been sent
